Support for Stockport Schools – ‘Checkpoint’
Within Stockport, the Pendlebury Centre offers a ‘Checkpoint’ service to our secondary school partners.
Checkpoint is best described as a ‘very early intervention’ service for Stockport schools in which young persons regarded as a ‘cause for concern’ regarding mental health are:
- Monitored by pastoral colleagues in mainstream – with a focus on clarifying what their needs and difficulties are, rather than a generic ‘challenging behaviour’ tag that can sometimes occur.
- Brought ‘to the table’ to discuss an initial plan of action – this might involve classroom strategies, recommended interventions, parental support and/or referral onwards to other appropriate services.
- The Checkpoint also helps colleagues within Stockport secondary schools identify training needs relating to mental health – providing both general training and training around specialist SEMH assessments and interventions.
We also work alongside the following Greater Manchester universities:
